UFC event in Russia?
What are the chances of a UFC coming to Russia in the near future? wouldnt that be a good move? according to Lorenzo Fertitta they want to focus on Western Europe now, but I think theyre missing on their biggest market in Europe.
Fighters like Nurmagomedov, Gashimov, Siver and Matyushenko are already in UFC. Other fighters like Shlemenko, Sarnavskiy, Guram, Vasilevski, Koreshkov among others can also perform at UFC level and bring in new styles.
Theres also some Russian wrestlers and boxers I believe can transition to MMA.
So why does the UFC not do an event in Russia, where the previously ranked #1 Fedor comes from?
